I agree that a little more speed on that new 16-70 would be nice, but don't forget the OSS will give you a couple of stops in low light. The fact that it only goes out to 70 on the long end and has OSS should make it fine for a walk-around lens - even in relatively low light.


It's true that OSS gives some advantages, but I have made the experience (when using the SEL18-55 kit lens) that OSS doesn't help with moving objects. It's great to have OSS but it doesn't solve all the problems related to low light.
